George R.R. Martin is pretty much happy with how well his books were adapted into Cyanide’s Game of Thrones RPG. Still, he realizes not everyone will be as pleased.

“Of course I want fans to like it. But nothing pleases everyone, and you can’t let that control what you do,” he told Joystiq.

“Not everyone will like the game. You do the best work you can, and hope the world responds. I’ve sampled the work Cyanide has done, and I’m largely happy with it. I think many of my fans will share that feeling.”

But it’s because he wasn’t involved that some of his fans aren’t happy.

“The entire game was written by Cyanide, including the plot and character dialogue. But I did have creative input at many points during the process,” Martin confirmed.

“What they’re doing is a parallel story to some of the early events in [A Song of] Ice and Fire, so my primary concern was that nothing in the game altered the events in the books,” he added.
